Ship names in Voyages

It would be great if ship names persisted between Voyages.
I'm rather partial to Culture style ship names, but have to come up with new ones each voyage rather than the "You were expecting someone smaller?" being ready to use again on subsequent missions.

  • There are lots of good names out there
    U.S.S. Indefatigable
    Scourge of Malice
    Sufficient Velocity
    Hubristic
    Pernicious
    Rhadamanthine
    Basically, just find an adjective and put U.S.S. at the front. Works every time.
  • One of my favorites is the U.S.S. Risible

    Incontrovertible has been a favorite of mine since I first saw it in one of the Escape Velocity games.
  • I think I'll stick with the U.S.S. Wienermobile.
  • Once I tried Laocoon, but it was blocked.
  • I just name them with the amount of antimatter at launch. Makes it easier to keep track and feed it to the voyage calculator.
  • The U.S.S........................

    Dear DB: Non sequitur. Your facts are uncoordinated.

    I tend to use whatever word or phrase I heard last in RL, keeping any typos
  • "Abnormal life signs aboard the Mop turned out to be the work of a sensor malfunction..."

    "I asked Lady Beverly to give a KCA scholar a tour of the Commode. She seemed to enjoy her tour of the ship."

    "I've allocated time for the Washing Machine's weekly pottery lessons..."

    Naming your ship after mundane objects is comedy gold.

  • One of the players in my fleet used to call the ship "Toilet". The screenshots they shared of the "Off the Books" dilemma were hilarious.

    I always name my ships for cities and counties n which I've live. It works fairly well for me except that for some incomprehensible reason, it won't let me name it after one of the cities I lived in in the Philippines. Cities are not as funny as mundain items, but I usually stick to a system once I start it.

    This is something I would like to see as well. I used to name the ships but I no longer bother. Having it stick would be great.

    I wish the names could be longer, once I tried “The Dark and Brooding Cloak of Untrammeled Destiny,” it was too long.

    Once I tried Laocoon, but it was blocked.

    I’ve tried using “Gwyrddfaen”, Welsh for ‘emerald’ or more literally ‘greenstone’, but it annoyingly is also blocked.
    Admiral of the Haus of GaghGagh, Starbase level 94, we are not accepting members at this time.
    Captain of the voyage vessels: Queen of Bashir, Landsknecht, and Sunspear, the first luxury starship cruiseliners.
    Amenities include wifi, fully-functioning holodecks, a full-service bar, 3 party decks, a Trill spa, and a business centre.
    Fun fact: The ships are propelled by bouncy castle technology.
